Synopsis
In 1989, I was adopted from Sri Lanka by parents from the Landes. In 2013, in Sri Lanka, I was reunited with my biological family.
From there, I chose to create my identity between my two lines of descent, my two cultures.

While learning to be the daughter of all my parents, I’m changing my view on my adoption’s story. I’m finding out about its ambivalence, and what it tells about the North-South relations in our world.
To free myself from it, I need to unfold its complexity, through the tale of an initiatory and revolutionary journey.

By finding my mom, I met the world.
